Why Purchase a Power Factor Correction Unit?
A power factor correction unit is a great addition to any home. These incredibly sophisticated devices can give you the power to manage your power consumption and unlock all of the fringe benefits that come with doing so.
Understanding the science behind these devices can be very tricky (we’d love to answer any of the questions that you might have, though). To help you get a clearer picture of what these devices can achieve for you and your home, let’s take a closer look at the key reasons to purchase a power factor correction unit.
Power Factor Correction Unit Harmonise Voltage to Your Equipment
Between entertainment devices and sophisticated kitchen appliances, we all have more complex electrical equipment that at any other point in time. It’s important that you carefully maintain these devices and take all the necessary steps to care for them.
A big part of protecting them is reducing the potential for electrical surges within your home. There are a number of techniques and tools that you can use a power factor correction unit can help to reduce spikes in power.
This means that you can use these machines to protect your equipment and keep everything in your home operating as efficiently as possible.
Reduce the Likelihood of Power Losses
Power factor correction can also reduce the risk of blackouts in your home. These complex systems work in the background to keep things safe and regulate the power going into your home. This helps to protect against the likelihood of a power loss.
This means that power factor correction units can help to protect you against data loss and lost productivity. In general, these home energy monitoring systems also help to preserve the integrity and health of your sensitive electrical equipment.
Cut Your Costs With Power Factor Correction Unit
By now, we all know that energy costs are on the rise and that trend continues to affect homeowners across the country. One of the best steps that you can take to protect yourself is to invest in a power usage monitor.
Power factor correction units can help to significantly reduce the amount of surplus power that you draw to your home. This can significantly reduce your costs and give you the ability to better exercise control over your power consumption.
Protect the Environment
By helping you to limit the amount of electricity that you draw to your home, power factor correction units can also help you to significantly improve power factor & reduce your carbon footprint.

High electricity bills
Networks charge you for every peak, so your demand charge is high
Even with solar, you’re still paying high peak demand charges. PowerSave will reduce these by up to 20%
High carbon emissions
High peak demand means greater carbon emissions
As the owner of a growing business, you’ve got better things to do than worry about energy bills. Without simple, energy efficient technology to reduce your peak demand, you could be missing out on significant savings.
Many business owners are completely unaware that, in addition to standard energy charges, Electricity Networks also hit customers with a Network Demand Charge. Whenever your equipment is turned on, it causes peak surges of power. Your electricity company charges you a maximum daily rate for that expensive peak power, even if you only use that peak power for a few minutes during the month.
Edge’s unique PowerSave is a globally-patented Power Factor Correction device. Its software-driven capacitors are like small batteries which provide peak power to your equipment, so that you don’t have to buy that expensive peak power from the Electricity Network.
Low electricity bills
You don’t pay for the peak, which reduces your demand charge
Equipment has an improved power factor, meaning they use power efficiently
Low carbon emissions
Equipment uses less power, resulting in lower carbon emissions
Smaller, more accurate and more cost-effective than other solutions
How we’ve helped businesses
“Edge Electrons analysed our energy usage and discovered we were paying over $6,000 more than we needed to every year in Demand Charges. Installing PowerSave has helped us fight back against rising electricity prices. We were very happy with the solution researched, recommended and provided by Edge Electrons.”
“In March 2016 we installed a 50kvar PowerSave unit. This unit is working very well, with Power Factor results exceeding original expectations.”
“Edge Electrons assessed the golf club’s energy usage and found that our business has a poor power factor due to pumps, refrigerators and air conditioning systems which use power inefficiently. By installing PowerSave, we were able to reduce our electricity costs and save more than $2,000 every year.”
“As the owner of a petrol station, I’m used to getting huge electricity bills. Edge’s PowerSave helps me chip away at expensive energy costs, and it works without me having to change the operations of my business.”
